Chairman of the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee and Kadima MK Otniel Schneller responded Monday to the photos of detained Palestinians posted on Facebook by a former IDF female officer.

Schneller said that at times the responsibility of the IDF commanding officer requires, for security reasons, the binding of detainees and the preserving of the captives' dignity, welfare and health. The pictures posted on Facebook, were a blow to values, which humiliates the detainee as well as the soldier.Schneler said that demoting the rank of the reserve officer should be considered and that all soldiers and officers must understand, that the IDF's strength lies not only in weapons and training, but in its morals and values which distinguishes it from other armies in the world.
